Do you cringe every time you open your closet door? It may be time for a makeover.

Most of us have them and appreciate them, but many of us would rather that our closets … stay in the closet. But there is hope for disorganized, messy spaces. From premade closet organizing systems to custom configurations, there’s a solution that can work for you.

Project: Remodel your closet for better organization.
Why: Having your stuff organized feels good and makes finding everything easier.

Good wall closets include:

  • Spaces for long and short hanging items
  • Several open shelves of varying heights
  • A bank of drawers (optional)
  • A spot for shoes
  • Places to hang ties and belts, and to stow handkerchiefs and scarfs

One frequently overlooked storage area is the linen closet. But a well-organized space for sheets and towels comes in handy on a daily basis.

The ideal depth of a linen closet is 16 to 20 inches deep, like the one shown here. This will keep your linens easier to see. If your closet is deeper, simply make the shelves shallower.

This floor plan shows the configurations for three closets: a wall closet for coats, a linen closet and a large master bedroom walk-in closet. Notice that the depth of the coat and linen closets is 24 inches. The coat closet has a single hanging rod and two small doors that open outward. The linen closet has a 20-inch-deep shelf and a single door. The walk-in closet is 7 feet wide and has a 3-foot-wide center aisle.First steps: 


1. Consider what you need to store and how you would like it to be arranged.

2. Take measurements.

3. Determine what materials will satisfy your budget and requirements, and whether this will be a DIY project or require a professional.

Closet organizing systems are available in hardware and home improvement stores. Whether you go for one of those or choose a custom version, you will have to choose among different types and finishes:

  • Vinyl-coasted wire systems are inexpensive, but they are not as sturdy as panel designs.
  • For panel systems you can choose inexpensive melamine, but this inexpensive finish may not suit your needs.
  • Wood-simulated finishes are more expensive.
  • Wood veneers are in the upper end of the cost spectrum.

This closet shows an excellent use of the space, especially at the far end. A shallow shelf with drawers provides places for socks, shoes, belts and other small items. The depth of this fixture does not interfere with the ends of the rods on the back walls, and allows plenty of room to comfortably reach the back corners of the closet.

An arrangement like this also helps to define individual spaces for those sharing a closet.
Layout tip: If your walk-in is less than 6½ feet wide, place hanging rods on one side and shelving and shoe racks on the other for good flow and accessibility.

Permit needed: It is unlikely that you will need a permit for remodeling your closet. However, if you are going to add or alter any light fixtures, you might need one. Check your local building codes.

Best time to do this project: This is an excellent project for the spring or whenever you’re doing a major clean-out. You’ll have a better sense of what you need to store and be fired up for organizing.
